Following last year’s represses of Cocteau Twins’ Blue Bell Knoll and Heaven or Las Vegas come the combined EPs of Tiny Dynamine / Echoes In A Shallow Bay and long out of print, early-80s compilation, The Pink Opaque. Using new masters created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tapes, both albums will receive 180g vinyl pressings this July (also coming with download codes). HD audio downloads of both albums will be made available through specialist retailers at the same time.

Back in 1986, The Pink Opaque brought together the best of the Cocteau Twins’ early works to become their first official release in the US. Already a cult band on college radio, some classics like ‘Pearly- Dewdrops' Drops’ and ‘Aikea-Guinea’ were given new mixes for this release, while it also featured ‘Millimillenary’, the first run out for incoming band member Simon Raymonde. To this day, it remains a great entry point to a wonderful band.
